The digital world did not exist a generation ago, and now it is a fundamental fact of life. In the span of less than three decades, we have redefined the way humans communicate, entertain, inform, research, create, and connect – and what we know now is only a hint of what is to come. New social structures are generating new leadership styles with different patterns of hierarchical authority, different skill sets and attitudes, and different institutional incentives. Top management and board directors are facing increasing challenges in dealing with operational, managerial and strategic decision making in an information-driven global economy. On July 8, AmCham is pleased to welcome Professor Tung Bui from the University of Hawaii to present the latest business trends and propose an inquisitive approach to organizational leadership in today’s digital age.
